National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month comes at the perfect time each year! Not only are some of the delicious fruits and veggies at their tastiest, but it’s also the beginning of summer vacation. Students who are home for the summer will most likely have the easiest access to junk foods and could use a refresher on why fresh foods are the better choice when the snack-time munchies come around.
